Factory Floor in its current, fully formed incarnation got together in late 2009 when guitarist/vocalist Nik Colk Void joined the dark-hearted, 21st Century rhythm section of drummer Gabe Gurnsey and synth player Dominic Butler.
Perhaps the most unlikely aspect of the band’s rise to notoriety has been their versatility. They produce a sound, that even their most ardent of fans describe as punishing, yet they seem equally at home playing raves, alternative festivals, art galleries, cinemas, nightclubs and rock shows; on top of that they’re as much at home collaborating with members of Throbbing Gristle and New Order (not to mention Richard H Kirk of Cabaret Voltaire, Simon Fisher Turner and Peter Gordon) as they are with contemporary artists such as Haroon Mirza and Hannah Sawtell.
Label boss Jonathan Galkin explained his love for the trio after seeing them play live in NYC’s Mercury Lounge and Knitting Factory: “It had a presence to it that was the same feeling I had when i saw say MBV in 1991 or Black Dice in 2001. It was just... exhilaratingly full and loud and relentlessly rhythmic... sonically it came at you and attacked you.”
